From the New York Times bestselling author of Just Haven’t Met You Yet, This Time Next Year, and Before I Do

‘Sophie’s books are always filled with warmth, but she’s outdone herself here. It’s the definition of a feel-good read! Funny, poignant, and heartfelt, I fell head-over-heels for this one’ LAURA JANE WILLIAMS

‘I wish I could skip to the good part, where my life is sorted. I’m so tired of being broke and single and stuck . . . I just want to get to the good part of my life.’

What if you could fast forward to your happy ever after?

Lucy Young is twenty-six and fed up with life, so when she stumbles upon a wishing machine, she wishes to skip ahead. When she wakes up the next day to the perfect life, Lucy can’t believe it’s real . . . especially when she looks in the mirror and sees her forty-something face staring back. As Lucy navigates her future life, she soon realises that along with the good part, there are harder surprises too. Does she want to go back to being the girl she once was? Or is the good part bright enough to stay in?
